VyQChat is a great application, you can also have a plugin for VyQchat for kopete.

1.VyQChat (standalone)
2.VyQchat-plugin (kopete plugin).

this will definitely help kde to have lan to lan chat client. Please consider adding a plugin to kopete. - Apr 06 2005
KDesktop Menu

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by rfujimoto 115 comments

This is What Kicker Menu (KMENU) should be like. Those kicker developers are damn stubborn not to implement nice features like:

1. Different icon sizes (16, 24, 32, 48)
2. Different Font Sizes
3. Different Font Colors and Styles
4. Programs Button (I requested since KDE 2.0 to have KStart or KMENU or Prgrams or Launch button with the 'K' icon) but "4$$8013$" did not listen to any of the request.

You've done a great job. The Programs Button is easy to click and the Icons just look amazing. And the Item arrangement is awesome.

Really Kicker developers need to learn a lot of usuability and ease of use. - Apr 04 2005
Konqueror Search (Mockup)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by earth 21 comments

This is just what KDE File Manager (kfm) needs.

1. It should also show 'files' with matching 'pattern' like

Location:/opt/kde/bin search: "ks"

must show

1. ksnapshot
2. ksmiltris
3. ksysv
4. ksayit
5. ksirc
6. *ks*

You know, I love Kaffeine, it is my default player, and I missed it soooo much. Please support KDE 3.4.

Thank you Very Much for this Release :) - Mar 20 2005

Various KDE Stuff by Braindead 31 comments

KDE definitely needs KCHM, though konqueror can show .chm files embedded. But an external application like KChm is a good thing for KDE.

I wish this be part of KDE 4. :) - Mar 16 2005

Though I have transcode, mplayer 1.06a libdvdcss libdvdread etc installed. I can play dvd with kmplayer or with "mplayer dvd://1"

I have set the /dev/sr0 linked to /dev/dvd, (of course ide-scsi enabled).

Thank you buddy, but I wondoer why rtsp:// and mms:// stuff do not get played with kplayer and embedding is also not supported by kplayer as with Kaffeine.

I wish:

1. support konqueror embedding (embedded media player)
2. play real media from konqueror from rtsp:// and mms:// protocol (of course with codecs installed.)

Kaffeine Player

Video Apps by juergenk 179 comments

Hi, I love Kaffeine, but the TABS are not good looking. A SideBar button (as in 'File Open Dialog') would look better with kaffeine.

I wish to report bug with kaffeine 0.5 when opening real media files at www.dishant.com. Previous kaffeine 0.4b would work just fine with kde 3.2. but kaffeine 0.5 with kde 3.3.2 simply crashes when playing streaming real media files. please have a look in this issue, as there is no good embeddedable media player for real media. thank you. - Jan 08 2005

KDE Menu Shortcut Improvement

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by maarizwan 13 comments

1st of all I use slackware 10+. So, My full slackware installation gives cluttered kde menu items.

this is just the arrangement of slackware menu (which is the default pristine kde menu).

So, mandrake, redhat, suse is not the point here. only default kde menu with other applications (gnome and x windows which are installed in slackware's full installation).

this is just a minor re-arrangement. not a new menu layout or something.

yours friendly,
Rizwaan. - Nov 25 2004

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by cjacker 45 comments

Friend, You've done an amazing job of making KDE look like Windows XP. If you can also make Window decoration and style to work with your 'Real KDE XP' Improvement, then Windows XP is no longer needed :).

I would LOVE to try your improvement. And KDE Developers are afraid of criticism if they try to implement anything close to windows. So, I am eagerly waiting for your KDE 3.3+ patch. Wow, I am really astonished!!!

Keep up the courageous work! - Oct 28 2004

Does Touch Typer support Unicode like Typing Trainer?

and a bug, that whenever you end your lesson by typing all the text, Typing Trainer 1.0rc3 crashes. both with unicode (hindi) and english text. - Sep 08 2004

Education Apps by hanseno 24 comments

Just compiled with the wrong pointers :)

okay, but Typing Trainer must have to have an option or 'Settings' to set the font. I have to edit 3 .cpp files and change 'Courier' to 'mangal' which is mangal.ttf for hindi and recompile.

under settings also, time limit and other stuff needed to be configured.

while typing if the user/typist does a mistake say he types x instead of y then the text 'x' shown above should get highlighted with a different color much like ktouch.

Now I am going to create lessons for Hindi language. This will be the first Hindi inscript typing trainer. Congratulations, and I appreciate your endeavor. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!! - Sep 07 2004

Education Apps by hanseno 24 comments

I am eagerly waiting for next release after 1.0rc2. I am visiting daily to see whether you've released the unicoded supported Typing Trainer. Please, Please, Please, I am dying to see Unicode Enabled Typing Trainer. Thanks. - Aug 17 2004

Education Apps by hanseno 24 comments

OK, just compiled and tested Typing Trainer. I Love its interface. Unfortunately it doesn't support Unicode text which is saved as Unicode text file. Please I need unicode to enable Hindi typing test!!!

instead of CTRL+O why not show errors at runtime (while typing)? that would be more intuitive.

And Open (ctrl+O) means open a file/exercise for a user, typing trainer's open behavior is not expected, that is it shows typing errors. Please try to make errors appear in red color during runtime typing. thanks. - Jul 26 2004

Education Apps by hanseno 24 comments

Thank you, Typing Trainer sound better than KTouch, and especially if you can allow UTF-8 encoding, so that many different languages can be supported by TypingTrainer. I can add Hindi, and Telugu support to Typing Trainer, by creating lessons. What a unicode Typing Trainer needs to show:

1. Actual Text (language text) in first row as in Language keyboard layout. (??????)
2. Key to be pressed to get the language character in the US keyboard layout. (ufvdor)

3. Entry area where text get entered

simply, 3 rows to get working with international Typing Trainer :)


1. Text displayed to be typed
2. space to enter the text (which is displayed above).

Thank you, and good luck in your efforts. - Jul 26 2004

Video Apps by kiriuja 100 comments

1. Yes, tooltips would be great!!! And
2. Most of all Settings lack ICONS :(.
3. File Association is not present in the Settings, I want to play all Audio and Video files with Kplayer!

Very Annoying
4. The message window: the error dialog just popups up. nobody like popups without 'Close' button and 'don't show this message again []' checkbox.

or better please show error message in a simplified manner in the 'Status' bar with Bold Red Color
File not Found
instead of
displaying the whole Mplayer's message.

Thank you! I wish KPlayer becomes the Default Player in KDE. - Jul 26 2004

Hi,I like Konverter, and you can improve it to include the following:

and vice-versa with each file type.

MP3-> OGG, WAV, au, snd, etc., using lame/sox etc.

Please try to make Konverter a Multimedia conversion software for KDE. Thanks. - Jul 24 2004

Hey Bro Developer,

I love Kplayer but it lacks:

1. System tray (like kaffeine, noatun, juk)
2. external playlist (the drop down list is weird)
3. Simplified Configuration/Settings, (I can't understand most of the options in the settings, those are too cryptic)

Above all KIO Slave support is just awesome. Thanks for such a nice player.

Eagerly waiting for next release with systray support and simplified settings. :) - Jul 21 2004
Sidebar improvement

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by ra1n 26 comments

Hey Ra1n,

this is just what i miss in KDE 3.2's Konqueror. earlier in kde 2.2, sidebar was something like this. I strongly support this to be the default Konqueror's Tree view.

This is especially useful for low resolution, which are lesser than 1024x768.

My good wishes... - Jul 17 2004
